I'm sure it can.  However, a Sefer Torah is written by hand, exactly the 
same way it was over a thousand years ago, and the last line of a verse 
is always justified (when appropriate) by extending only the last 
letter.  It's not a matter of "there's another way to do it," it's a 
question of can either TeX or Scribus match the traditional way of 
filling the space?  And, of course, whoever sets it up has to know when 
to do it and when to start the next verse without a paragraph break, but 
that's a different issue.
